Mattress Removal: Your Options
Four Things You Can Do
After sleeping on it, have you come to the decision it’s time to replace your mattress? Before you put it on the curb to be taken by your waste management company (even though they might not take it!), learn your responsible mattress removal options.
Your Mattress Removal Options
- Recycle It: Did you know 80% to 100% of the average mattress can be disassembled and broken down into raw materials? These materials are then recycled into new products. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to recycle your mattress. You will need to look for a recycling facility and take it there yourself. You can learn more from the Mattress Recycling Council.
- Sell It. Did your guest room house fewer visitors than you thought it would? You might be able to make a few bucks off your lightly used mattress! Offer it for sale on a local yardsale site like Facebook Marketplace, and request the buyer comes to pick it up. Be honest about use and any imperfections, and don’t set your sights too high on price.
- Donate It: If your mattress is in good shape, you can call a nonprofit to see if they are able to take it. This is a nice way to see if your old item can be put to good use. However, not all nonprofits are willing to take mattresses, so you might need to spend some time researching.
